Providing expert care for the world’s most vulnerable animals.

Since 2003, the Worldwide Veterinary Service has been at the cutting edge of animal welfare. There is nowhere we won’t go if an animal needs our support.

Animal welfare matters

All over the world animals are facing unbelievable hardship and lacking even the most basic level of care.

We don’t think this is fair.

The Worldwide Veterinary Service works tirelessly across the globe to ensure that no animal goes uncared for.

Whether sending vital aid parcels to thousands of organisations working in the poorest areas, delivering expert veterinary training to raise the standard of care worldwide or mobilising our dedicated vets on the ground, we’re committed to animal welfare.

The Worldwide Veterinary Service skillfully trains vets in our International Training Centres in India and Thailand along with bespoke courses throughout Asia and Africa.

We’re committed to raising the standard of veterinary care around the world. This ensures that whenever and wherever an animal is in need, a professional vet can provide crucial care.

Where do animal welfare charities turn when they urgently need medication but can’t afford it? The Worldwide Veterinary Service of course!

We send around 90 aid parcels every month to some of the world’s most deprived areas – where even basic care is often lacking. Last year, we sent life-saving supplies worth almost £400,000 with awesome results.

Worldwide Veterinary Service vets deploy around the world to tackle the worst cases of animal neglect.

As well as delivering one-on-one lifesaving care for individual animals in need, we influence at the highest level of Government to champion animal welfare globally. We tackle the many causes of poor welfare, not just the shocking results.

Through the Worldwide Veterinary Service, hundreds of volunteers – vets, vet nurses and those with a love of animals – have supported animal welfare projects around the globe.

We ensure these devoted volunteers can go where the need is greatest and where their impact will be felt by the animals, and local communities, for years to come.
